Non-candy class Valentines idea with free printable.

I was just casually scrolling through Amazon, when I stumbled upon the most darling little squishy toy my eyes have ever seen.

I thought about getting them for my kiddos birthday, but when I noticed how affordable they were I couldn’t help but think how perfect they would be for a class Valentines idea!

Coming in sweet pastel colors, with an irresistible call to “squish me”, my kids were all on board.

I shall call him squishy and he shall be mine, class valentines.

I immediately thought of the quote from Dory on Finding Nemo – “I shall call him squishy and he shall be mine, and he shall be my squishy.”

So I made some printables to go with the squishy Valentines, for you to print and enjoy as well!

Every year I challenge myself to come up with a non-candy idea for class Valentines. I’m not totally against treats, but it doesn’t take long to realize what a bag full of sugar will do to your child when they come home and consume it all before you even have a chance to see it.

But finding a non-candy idea is not always very affordable.

These cute squishy toys come to about .40 cents each. More than a bag of tootsie rolls, for sure, but I can guarantee they will be a hit in the classroom. My kids adore their squishy texture and darling little animal faces.

But when my niece refused to use the word “love” to the boys in her class, the “squishies” were made just for her!
